49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on Richard Sherman, Raheem Mostert, K’Waun Williams, others

Nov 11, 2020 at 2:08 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice and provided several injury updates. The team is preparing to face the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

  • RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) won't play against the Saints. Shanahan hopes to have him back for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams — after the bye.
  • RB Tevin Coleman (knee) won't play either. Shanahan also hopes to have him back for Week 12.
  • LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) also won't play this weekend.
  • WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) will not practice today. The team will re-evaluate him tomorrow.
  • CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) will be out "for a while." Injured reserve is a possibility (see below).
  • WR Trent Taylor (back) won't practice today.
  • WR Kendrick Bourne remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
  • CB Richard Sherman (calf) will practice for the first time since before Week 1.

Today, the 49ers placed safety Jaquiski Tartt on injured reserve due to a turf toe injury.

Shanahan was asked if injured reserve was being considered for Williams, who is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. There is just one problem. The cornerback has already been on injured reserve once this season.

"We don't know yet because he can't go on IR-to-return twice," Shanahan explained. "So he already had that once in the year, so we're trying to evaluate, see how he goes. It's a high-ankle sprain, so that's usually four to six weeks, which will lead him up towards the end of the year. We're not going to put him on if he can't come back because once we do put him on, he can't (return).

"We're just trying to wait that out and see how he reacts here over the next week or so, and to see what our options are with the rest of our roster."

Regarding Sherman, Shanahan hopes to have his veteran cornerback back in time for Week 12 against the Rams.

"I know Doctor Sherm thinks he's got a chance this week," Shanahan added. "And I've been around him enough that that's why I don't count him out on that. But my goal is hopefully to get him back by the Rams. But I won't rule him out for anything because of what his prognosis is."

'I'm just getting started': 49ers RB Raheem Mostert addresses misconceptions

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is clearly frustrated with the narrative surrounding his future. He is 29 years old and is coming off an injury-plagued 2020 campaign. Although, in his defense, it feels like the entire 49ers roster was impacted by injuries last season, so it's not really fair to single out Mostert. The running back appears healthy and has reportedly looked good in the team's two training camp practices. Mostert wears a brace during those practices. However, it has nothing to do with the injuries that limited the running back to eight games last season. He just wants to clear that

Al-Shaair walked off the field with the team's medical staff and linebacker Fred Warner. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that the team is "pretty optimistic" about the injury after very early preliminary examinations.

He has recorded 53 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a quarterback hit, an interception, two passes defensed, and a forced fumble in 31 games and nine starts with the team. Other

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

By David Bonilla

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...
